lyrics

Firelight (D)

Verse 1
D / D / A- / A- /
I am a lonesome cowboy from the plains
G / G / D / D /
I walked ten miles to shelter from the rain
D / D / A- / A- /
been watching you by the firelight
G / G / D / D /
you want to know which way is wrong & which way is right

Now if you trace your line back to the south
don't be surprised if they punch you in the mouth
Cause you were waiting here so patiently
What’s the point of waiting to be free

Chorus
A- / G / D / D /
If you can’t prove you got the groove why do you try
If you can’t lose then why’d you choose that alibi?
Maybe I’m wrong, maybe I’m wrong but I’ve got to try
Maybe I’m wrong, Maybe I’m wrong but I’ve got to try
D / D / A- / A- /
Ahh..
G / G / D / D /

Verse 2
Now it’s a plain and simple fact
You occupy the place where I once sat
She don’t love you much more than she loved me
I bet you wait for her so patiently

Chorus 2
Now if you choose not to abuse her memory
You don’t despise all of the lies you couldn’t see
Maybe I’m wrong, Maybe I’m wrong can you make me see
Maybe I’m wrong, Maybe I’m wrong can you help me see
Ahh…

Verse 3
If you retrace your steps a hundred miles
You’ll never find the memory of her smile
It was just that way - she’s a picture of desire
No flesh no blood, no bones, just smoke and fire

Chorus 3
Now what you do, it don’t sound cool but it’s all right
and if you lose how do you choose now not to fight
maybe I’m wrong maybe I’m wrong but it don’t seem right
maybe I’m wrong
maybe I’m wrong
but it don’t seem right
Ahh…
